Buffalo has always had a special place in my heart. My parents settled in Lackawanna a suburb. Also the Bills were my favorite AFL team. And finally at the age of 54 I was at the Bills training facility in Orchard Park. I took three snaps at Quarterback. You won’t find that in the record books.
The State of New York has given the OK for the Buffalo Bills to allow a limited number of fans to attend their upcoming playoff game.
State health officials will allow the team to host 6,772 fans for their playoff game scheduled for either Jan 9 or 10, according to the team’s press release.
Even with strict limits in place, the decision is a notable reversal for New York, which has enforced strict bans on gatherings in large spaces, even outdoors, and gone after those who try to flout the rules. The move prompted backlash among health experts and a range of state and local officials, who expressed concern about limited supplies of rapid testing kits and the general wisdom of backtracking for an NFL game.
